Love It Like You Stole It

 

LoveItLikeYouStoleIt-fMichael Levine is backed into a corner. He started tearing apart cars for the local mob with the best of intentions—to save up money to pay for his mechanic certifications and impress his crush and mentor, Ben. But Michael soon finds himself in way over his head. He knows stealing is wrong, but it’s only cars, and the insurance will pay to replace them, right? What started out as a small job to make some extra bucks soon turns into a nightmare he’s not sure he’ll ever be able to find his way out of.

Ben Jelen isn’t sure where his life is going. On the surface everything looks fine. He has a successful business, he’s raising his niece into a strong person, and he has a boyfriend most guys only dream of—sexy and rich. But nothing feels right. The only things that really keep Ben’s attention anymore are his classic Road Runner, his niece, and Michael—his Meeko. Ben took him under his wing forever ago, and their love of old cars and fast driving has forged a strong bond. Ben’s days don’t feel right if he doesn’t get to see Meeko at least once. But something seems drastically wrong in Meeko’s life, and Ben hopes he can put the pieces together to help him before it’s too late.

Love It Like You Stole It is available for Pre-Order from NineStar Press here. 

Release date everywhere else is July 6th, 2018. 

Happy reading!

Gravidam Series #1

Peirs had accepted his life of servitude to an angel. His keeper asked only for a willing body, and in exchange his needs were met and he was fed and clothed. Peirs might have served the angel forever—it was the only life he knew—but one day Peirs discovered something he had no way to plan for. After two millennia, he was pregnant. Peirs now must summon the courage to escape his master and the unbendable divine law that declared no half-breeds should live, but running into an angelic soldier in the back room of a bar wasn’t part of his plan.

After years of begging to go to the battlefields on Earth, Tabbis, the youngest angel in Heaven, finally got his assignment. Ready for heroics and bloodshed, he was stunned when he found enchanting and seductive Peirs instead. Tabbis was duty bound to kill Peirs, but Peirs’s very existence challenged everything Tabbis thought he knew.

Tabbis needs answers. Peirs wants nothing more than to save his baby and live in peace. Can they band together to help each other? Or will the wrath of Heaven tear them apart?

Incubus Adored: Book #1 in the Gravidam Series

Incubus Adored - eBook (2)

Hello All!

My life has had some interesting ups and downs in the last year. I gained (and lost) a day job, Sugar Plum has started a new job, and I went through some personal things that are still hanging in the wind, but through all of that, I’ve still be plucking away at the keyboard.

I’ve never really sat down to write a series before, but I’ve decided my next adventure is upward and onward into the land of MPREG.

The series begins with Incubus Adored, which has a tentative release day of May 17th. Every story is fully contained in and of itself and should be able to be read stand alone.

Those of you who know me are well aware that I have a tendency toward darker stories and story themes, and while this one is also a bit dark there is also hope in the end. I’ve decided to go indie publication with this series (Though I have a crack editor, and fearless band of supporters beta reading to help me pull it all together). Incubus Adored has a bit more sex in it than my last book, Secret Seth, but I feel it suited the story.

At this point I would be remiss if I did not thank Tricia Kristufek, who rips my work apart so I can put it back together.

So, allow me to share the blurb.

Peirs had accepted his life of servitude to an angel. His keeper asked only for a willing body, and in exchange his needs were met and he was fed and clothed. Peirs might have served the angel forever—it was the only life he knew—but one day Peirs discovered something he had no way to plan for. After a millennium, he was pregnant. Peirs now must summon the courage to escape his master and the unbendable angelic law that declared no half-breeds should live, but running into an angelic soldier in the back room of a bar wasn’t part of his plan.

After years of begging to go to the battlefields on Earth, Tabbis, the youngest angel in Heaven, finally got his assignment. Ready for heroics and bloodshed, he was stunned when he found enchanting and seductive Piers instead. Tabbis was duty bound to kill Peirs, but Peirs’s very existence challenged everything Tabbis thought he knew.

Tabbis needs answers. Peirs wants nothing more than to save his baby and live in peace. Can they band together to help each other? Or will the wrath of Heaven tear them apart?

The process for an indie book is so much more intense on my end than when I work with a publisher, but it’s been fun as well. I make all of the decisions, so if something is wrong in the end, it is all my fault, unlike when I have a book that a publisher is curating. I’m excited to get Incubus Adored out soon. Right now it’s back with my editor. I’ll go over it again, read it out loud, a final check, and then have it to the formatter. After that it’s only a hop skip and a jump to published.

So, save the date for this one. May 17th you’ll be able to pick up Incubus Adored as an Amazon exclusive release, also available in Kindle Unlimited.

Today I’m sitting down to begin the manuscript document for Incubus Lost Book #2 in the Gravidam series. If you would like to check out my regular updates on the Gravidam Series you can find those at the facebook page dedicated to it right here.

Happy Reading!

While you wait for Incubus Adored, check out Secret Seth. It’s available for purchase and through Kindle Unlimited. 

SecretSethFinalBookCoverTyler Faulkner lived for his work, constructing Hollywood sets. His designs were perfect, and he expected equal perfection from his crew and himself. But, talented as he was, he felt trapped. A creative clash with a producer left him out of more than just a job, and Tyler decided that maybe a new beginning was exactly what he needed.

Seth Goodwin was reliable. So rock-steady that his father made him a partner in the family construction business over his older brothers. Seth’s job was simple—he took a highly skilled crew out on the road to build ridiculously expensive projects for rich clients. Their success prompted Seth and his dad to hire a new designer.

Seth wasn’t so steady around Tyler. Tyler didn’t simply draw art; he forced it into reality, elbowing his way into Seth’s work crew and life, whether he wanted him there or not. But Seth had a secret he’s been keeping for a long while, and Tyler, flamboyant and verbose, wasn’t someone who fit in a closet, unless he was looking for the perfect shoes to go with his outfit. Would Seth and Tyler be able to make it work? Or would everyone’s secrets catch up with them?

Cover Reveal for Louise Lyons’ Regeneration (M/M, Sci-Fi)

Hello all!

I love sci-fi. I grew up on a steady diet of Dune, ST Next Generation, Firefly, and, of course, repeated viewings of Star Wars. In college I was even geek enough to play the Star Wars RPG, and I am, indeed talking table top games here.

Uber-geek. 

Based on the blurb, this story looks like it will be a good one for anyone who fell in love with deep space. Plus, the cover reminds me of a 1960’s movie poster, which I have to say I love.

Check it out!

Regeneration

Release date: January 15, 2017

Genre: Gay fiction, science fiction, MM romance

Length: 75,000 words

Cover design: Simon Searle

Blurb

In the 23rd Century in the galaxy of Sigma Kappa, Kim Fortune was the first surviving experimental enhanced human—a regenerate. Aged fifteen, he escaped the lab and years later, his failings as a regenerate and the suspicion of regular humans, leave him lonely and lacking in self-worth. Stranded on an abandoned planet, the arrival of a stricken ship and its crew give him hope that he may finally find what he always longed for—love.

Christian Novak is a successful regenerate with all the intended attributes—including lack of human emotion. Despite their immediate attraction to each other, Kim’s failing confidence, and Christian’s inability to empathize are a recipe for disaster. But war, imprisonment, and danger throw them together, and after each saves the other’s life, their feelings begin to change.

Can a seemingly unsuitable pair ever find love, or is a future together destined to fail?

Author Bio

Louise Lyons comes from a family of writers. Her mother has a number of poems published in poetry anthologies, her aunt wrote poems for the church, and her grandmother sparked her inspiration with tales of fantasy.

Louise first ventured into writing short stories at the grand old age of eight, mostly about little girls and ponies. She branched into romance in her teens, and MM romance a few years later, but none of her work saw the light of day until she discovered FanFiction in her late twenties. Posting stories based on some of her favourite movies, provoked a surprisingly positive response from readers. This gave Louise the confidence to submit some of her work to publishers, and made her take her writing “hobby” more seriously.

Louise lives in the UK, about an hour north of London, with a mad dog called Casper, collection of tropical fish and tarantulas. She works in the insurance industry by day, and spends every spare minute writing. She is a keen horse-rider, and loves to run long-distance. Some of her best writing inspiration comes to her, when her feet are pounding the open road. She often races home afterward, and grabs pen and paper to make notes.

Louise has always been a bit of a tomboy, and one of her other great loves is cars and motorcycles. Her car and bike are her pride and job, and she loves to exhibit the car at shows, and take off for long days out on the bike, with no one for company but herself.

Release Day for The Paranaturalist and Blog Tour Info

 

 

I’m very excited to have made it this far on this book. It has been a long haul. The Paranaturalist isn’t like my magical first two books that were accepted by the publisher without any questions. This one had to be rewritten. I cried over it and sweat over it and at the end of the day and I think it was much better for all that work.

Happy reading!

The Paranaturalist

As a kid, Joseph Appleyard saw things hidden from others. Now he is The Paranaturalist, an investigator and cohost of a television show that seeks to prove the existence of the paranormal. Some think Joe is crazy, but they don’t realize he knows firsthand there’s more to the world than what most perceive. The trouble is, somewhere along the way, Joe lost his vision and it left his world flat and dull. One night an investigation goes horribly wrong, and a powerful ghostly manifestation sends Joe tumbling into a river. Spirit worker Owen Watson saves Joe’s life, and once they are back on dry land, whatever has been blocking Joe’s vision has been washed away.

When a haunting goes from annoying to dangerous, people turn to Owen Watson. He hates those infuriating hacks from TV, but when he pulls Joe from the river, his mind begins to change. Joe is scared and confused, and Owen realizes he might just be the real thing. Together, they work to understand the part of Joe that has been shut away for so long. But just as Joe is reacclimating to his abilities, his career as a paranormal investigator is in danger of being ripped away. Owen would gladly battle a bloodthirsty spirit for Joe, but he’s out of his element in the world of reality television.

Memorial Day Musings and Book Reviews

beach.jpg

Hello All!

This week has been one of those weeks. With the holiday and the humidity here (the air is like fishy soup along the lake) I’ve been moving sloooowly. I am, in fact, writing this blog today to continue to procrastinate rather than getting to writing for the day.

Procrastination is an art form. Don’t let anyone talk you out of that fact.

I’ve been to the beach three times in the last four days, and while I won’t call that procrastination, so much as salvation in this heat (my apartment has no air conditioning because…actually I can’t think of a valid reason for that…money. Yeah, it’s expensive to run an air conditioner…that’s actually a good reason…) it hasn’t improved my word counts any.

 

In the last week I’ve finished a few fun books, and while I can’t quite bring myself to do full write ups of them, I’ll talk about them briefly.

NEW RELEASE!

Bink Cummings His Boy

For years, I lived with him as roommates. Then, one fateful night, things changed. We became more. So much more. The sex was out of this world. Being his boy was the highlight of my day. Until feelings started to creep in and sex wasn’t enough for me. Afraid of losing him, I kept quiet and hoped for a miracle… Could my Daddy love me, too? Or would I continue to be his boy… his play toy?

Warning: Contains shameless adult sexual M/M content, romance, adult language, taboo elements including those of consensual Daddy/Boy (non-incest) relationships, and whatever else that makes it unsuitable for anyone under the age of 18.

Long 39K Standalone Steamy Novella

Thoughts:

At first I was leery of this read because it started out with a breaking the fourth wall direct narrative to the reader that felt a little bit like the opening to Red Shoe Diaries (AGE TEST!) but, at some point it transferred into a mostly regular narrative with switching points of view.

There is Daddy Kink galore in this book, though nothing truly hardcore. I think, maybe this is more Daddy Kink light? Either way, I enjoyed it and was pleasantly surprised when what I thought was mostly going to be a spank book also had a story line.

Overall, I would recommend picking this up for a very light, fast, sexy read.

 

Cold Blooded.jpg

Superheroes. Evil minions. And one hell of a conflict of interest.

Being related to a supervillain isn’t a big deal to Pat West. So what if his mom occasionally tries to take over the world? All Pat wants is to finish university and become an urban designer. That he moonlights as an evil minion sometimes – that’s just a family tradition.

Then Pat accidentally sleeps with superhero Silver Paladin, otherwise known as reclusive billionaire Nick Andersen. It’s a simple misunderstanding. Pat never means to impersonate a prostitute, honest. But soon Pat is in way over his head, and threatening to fall for the worst possible guy.

When Pat’s mother returns to bring the world to its knees, Silver Paladin races to stop her… and all of Pat’s secrets threaten to blow up in his face. How can Pat reconcile being a minion with wanting a hero? Will Nick’s feelings for Pat overcome what keeps them apart? Or will they both lose everything?

“Love for the Cold-Blooded” is a light-hearted jaunt through a world of superheroes and villains, android dolphins, mind control rays, eldritch artifacts stolen from the tombs of ancient gods, and young men loving not wisely, but well.

Length: 135,000 words

Thoughts:

  1. I was excited to see a fantastically well written, well plotted, and well put together Indie book. As far as I can figure this book was constructed entirely by Alex Gabriel and his team, who are German if my snooping through the book details is accurate. Good on you, Alex. Great job!
  2. This book is hilarious.
  3. The title cracks me up every time I look at it.
  4. There are not enough superhero books in the m/m genre.
  5. This book does a wonderful job at hitting all those quirky, fun things from the 1970’s superhero television shoes. The “sluts” will make you laugh and if they don’t? Well, you don’t have a sense of humor.
  6. There was a wonderful plot and an amazing amount of world construction in this book. It’s done so seamlessly you probably won’t realize it until you put it down, if you ever do, and that takes talent.

This book was great. If you like super heroes and comics you will thoroughly enjoy this book.

I hope everyone has a great Memorial Day in the states and gets a chance to do some reading today!
